Joey Ryan is one of the funniest and most creative indie wrestlers in the world right now. He is very well known for his inter-gender matches and puts up a great show. He also has a very unique move set. He is one of the founders of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla promotion.
He was a guest on Talk is Jericho podcast recently. Ryan spoke about his TNA journey and how he got fired by the promotion. "When I got signed to TNA, I was exclusive there. It was back in 2011 because back then, TNA guys couldn't work the indies," Ryan explained.
"I left the promotion because I had to. I was in TNA for 13 months which was a funny story too; it was one of those things where they signed me for a year with a year option and then when my year was up, they sent me a FedEx saying that they are going to pick up my option and then a month later, they fired me”.
He went back to PWG after Impact wrestling fired him. He didn’t do any office work there, according to him. He just went there as a talent. The promotion was running smoothly at that time and many people came and went from the promotion. He recently had an inter-gender match with Tessa Blanchard for Impact Wrestling. It was super entertaining.
